Well, that is the million dollar question. Here is what Hunter told me.

The Headliner is held up in a track that is attach to the coach-roof. One has to find a corner, open up the track with a tool and carefully pull the headliner out of the track. Only take out as much of the headliner that you need to get to the area you are working on. For what I gathered it like a furling jib track that that headliner sits in. Only one can prey open the track. Now for the tool.

#1 Buy their custom made tool for $80.
#2. Use the edge of an old CD to open the track and reattach the headliner.
#3. Get a putty knife and file down the edge to a dull finish.
#4. Get a screen gasket tool (Like a pizza cutter but only dull).
I plan on trying this out this weekend. Wish me luck.
